Advance Products & Systems
Advance Products & Systems says the Kleerband® Flange Protectors and Radolid® Protection caps protect bolts, nuts and flange faces on raised face or full face flanges in areas that are subject to the ravages of extreme corrosion conditions such as wet wells, pump stations, regulator vaults and above and below ground installations. Intent is to prevent corrosion from developing between flanges on piping systems. With the patented Kleerband® design, visual inspection of the flange surface can be accomplished without removing the flange protector. Kleerband® is a transparent polymer band with grease injection fittings and relief vent plug that allows 360° of continuous inspection. All sizes are available.

Added benefits: efficiently handles gas void fractions up to 99%, low-shear pumping action preserves each fluid’s characteristics without emulsification or degradation, extended well production life, and decreased well bore pressures. 937-438-3434, firstname.lastname@example.org, 877-4UMOYNO, www.moyno.com.
PipeSak® Pipeline Products
PipeSak® Pipeline Products spotlights development of PipePillo™ for pipeline support in and out of the trench. After completing five years of design and engineering, the company says the PipePillo™ is intended to serve dual functions: 1) providing controlled support and protection for the pipeline through areas of rocky trench and 2) for use adjacent to the trench as stackable pipeline support for stringing and welding. PipeSak says, in recent trial tests on the Ruby Pipeline, the pipeline supports proved quick and easy to install; kept the pipeline centered in the trench; and maintained a design height of 8 inches. The product is lightweight, can be installed from outside the trench, does not float or biodegrade, and does not restrict cathodic protection currents.

WeldFit Corp. now has the capability to extrude 48-inch outlets through heavy-walled cylinders. As explained by Todd Sale, Sr. VP of Engineering and Quality, “WeldFit has specialized in extruded outlets for over 30 years, but we recently expanded our envelope of capabilities to the point where we can now extrude up to 48-inch outlets.” The initial 48-inch outlets were produced to form the bodies of multiple 48-inch x 48-inch flow tees for a customer. Through the achievement of this milestone, WeldFit is now one of the few companies with the equipment, tooling, and expertise necessary to produce such large extruded outlets.

Murphy’s new gas compressor Engine Integrated Control System (EICS) integrates key components for engine optimization, including ignition system, air/fuel control, speed governing, interface and diagnostics, sensors, harnessing, catalyst and the engine control module, into one complete package. By combining these products, the EICS saves money and man-hours associated with the installation and set-up of separate components. The EICS was designed and tested to work with specific engine models. Murphy says it conducted extensive dynometer testing to ensure each specific engine will run at optimum performance across all scenarios without the need for manual field adjustments. By completing this testing upfront, operators can be certain their site will pass required testing without the need for pre-testing to get dialed in or chronic field adjustments. 918-317-4100, www.fwmurphy.com.
